At Elevation, child dedications are a joint expression of a parent’s desire to raise Godly children. As a church we are committed to empower parents in that calling and help families raise God-honoring kids. We count it an honor to be entrusted with that incredible privilege.
In 1 Samuel 1:27-28, a godly woman named Hannah prayed for years for God to give her a child. He answered her prayers and she gave birth to a son, whom she named Samuel. When Samuel was born, Hannah prayed these words: “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”
Child dedications are a time for parents, like Hannah, to commit themselves to raising their child God’s way. It’s a powerful time for parents to embrace the responsibility they’ve been given by God and to catch a vision of the impact they can make in their child’s life.
We make these events special by encouraging the whole family to get involved and an event families will always remember.
We invite families with children ages 0 – 4 years to participate in the dedication. Child dedications are scheduled periodically throughout the year at each Elevation location.

We are excited to be holding Child Dedications at our 8 area locations over the next two months. Child dedications are a time for parents to commit themselves to raising their child God’s way. They are a joint expression of a parent’s desire to raise Godly children and our commitment as a church to empowering parents in that calling.

At Elevation we always want to provide opportunities for parents to prioritize raising their kids according to God’s plan for their lives. This past weekend we gave new parents that opportunity through our Child Dedication Celebration. In Deuteronomy 6:5-7 Moses tells the nation of Israel to “Impress [God’s commandments] on the hearts of their children” and we were privileged to partner with new parents in making that commitment.
Each family took the opportunity to pray over their child as they committed to invest spiritually in them. It’s such and honor to partner with families in raising their kids to not just survive the world but to change the world for Christ.
If you’re a new parent and would like to be part of our next Child Dedications in the Spring of 2012 please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
